You can use Interdubs also to show your work to prospects. Many people found it helpful to have their key work already online in a folder or a couple. They often use tags to categorize the work. They create a new login and copy the clips that they like to present into the folder of the login. Often they use the notes feature to add a message for their presentation. Some have a specific look created for these presentations. Finally they send email to their prospects, and check with the logs when people had time to look at their work. If you like to use a similar workflow, then then please get in touch, it is part of Interdubs services offerings to configure such solutions for their clients. See Sales tool for more details.
